    Singapore-based Otsaw Digital recently introduced its O-R3 automated ground-aerial surveillance system, a world first. It combines an autonomous robotic security vehicle and a companion drone. Thanks to machine learning, the surface vehicle can avoid obstacles, spot abandoned bags and other suspect objects, and use...

    French start-up Sunbirds has designed a solar drone that can fly nonstop for 8 hours. At 3 kg and with a 3-meter wingspan, the SB4 Phoenix relies on 100% non-polluting electric energy. The drone can recharge its batteries in flight thanks to 40 solar cells on the wings. This enables it to greatly exceed the flight...

    Its name is Vahana and it could become the first pilotless flying taxi. Last week, Airbus released several artist’s conceptions of its project vehicle that could become a reality by the end of 2017, with a prototype flying in Singapore. Designed to unclog urban traffic, Vahana will transport cargo as well as people....

    The old dream of a flying car might someday come true: The Canadian start-up Airvinci has designed the first personal flying vehicle that’s so easy to pilot that a car driver could do it. Neither a drone nor a proper helicopter, the NN2725N, or BackPack Helicopter, is thought of as an alternative to the car. It can...

    Watch our video.The 4-8X Dual ATEX Drone by Xamen Technologies is the world’s first ATEX-certified drone specifically designed to perform in hazardous environments where there is significant risk of fire and explosion. Built primarily of carbon, the eight wooden propellers prevent electrostatic sparks. The drone is...

    From 3D laser mapping to identifying pipeline corrosion and checking well pads, refineries and chemical plants, the use of unmanned aircraft systems (UAS) is on the rise, both onshore and off.   Drones get bad press. They’re often seen only as weapons of war or as a potential danger to aircraft. However, they are...
